I find that it produces a healthy type of pain, such that like a hard workout or certain types of massage or losing weight, perhaps. It’s painful initially and makes you feel better in the interim and long term. The pain brings my awareness to what I need to listen to specifically. I tried acupuncture with the goal of seeing if it could make me feel better and live healthier, feel happier, and perform better. The results, I thought, were instant and sustained over time. Now it’s ten years later and I’ve had a whole bunch of different sessions. Acupuncture has been steady for about ten years. I find that I reach much lower lows without acupuncture. For me those stressful periods are often the most important. Acupuncture has had a profound impact in giving me something to lean on twice a week in those intense times. It helps me feel significantly better despite the rest of my life constituting abuse to my body.
I started getting acupuncture and seeing results but the most important thing was being able to have 45 minutes completely disconnected from anything else. I’ve been borderline diabetic since puberty and all my family has diabetes. Its genetics so I don’t expect to fix it but its nice to have something that helps you cope with it. The best part of an acupuncture treatment is the high: feeling absolutely relaxed. I don’t get that feeling unless I’m asleep so it’s nice to be aware and relaxed at the same time.

About me

I am a Chinese Medicine Practitioner in Portland, Oregon. Of course, you can call me an acupuncturist, but I think it is important to recognize that what I, and many acupuncturists, are trying to embody is the classical physician. One who gets to know their patients deeply, and uses the many tools at their disposal, both modern and ancient, to bring that patient back into harmony and health, whether that be with acupuncture alone or with herbal medicine, bodywork, nutrition, and wellness counseling. I enjoy working with individuals wherever they are in life and with whatever challenges they are facing. I get truly passionate about the creation of a family, so I love helping with fertility issues.

In addition to my Chinese Medicine practice, I am part of the faculty of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, teaching Herbal Practicum.
